Donald Trump has demanded a drug test of Joe Biden before the presidential debate on the upcoming Tuesday. Taking into notice the previous political debates, Trump suggested a drug test as he claimed that Biden’s last debate was uneven. Donald Trump accused his competitor by taking it on to Twitter which is a microblogging website.
I will be strongly demanding a Drug Test of Sleepy Joe Biden prior to, or after, the Debate on Tuesday night. Naturally, I will agree to take one also. His Debate performances have been record setting UNEVEN, to put it mildly. Only drugs could have caused this discrepancy???

The tweet read that “I will be strongly demanding a Drug Test of Sleepy Joe Biden prior to, or after, the Debate on Tuesday night. Naturally, I would agree to take one also. His Debate performances have been record-setting UNEVEN, to put it mildly. Only drugs could have caused this discrepancy???”
The news spread like fire on social media. The reaction of the netizens to this post was different. However, the post regarding the drug test of Joe Biden was followed by a plethora of favourable and non-favourable comments.
For several months Trump has argued upon the mental condition of Biden who is 77 years old
The accusation of Trump at his occasion was without any concrete evidence as it is a common perception among the public that the candidates for the election campaigns are heavily drugged before the delivery of their speech in order to have an effective and better performance. Trump supported his stance for demanding a drug test of Joe Biden by saying that he should be tested too.
The reaction of Joe Biden on Trump’s comment
On the other hand, Biden has taken no notice of this accusation and left it on the public to observe the two men whilst the delivery of their speech. For several months Trump has argued upon the mental condition of Biden who is 77 years old.
The two opposition leaders would come across one another in the coming days for the sake of presidential election debates. The debates would take place on the 29th of September, 15th of October and 22nd of October in Cleveland, Miami and Nashville respectively. However, the nominees for the vice presidents i.e Mike Pence and Kamala Harris would meet in Salt Lake City on the 7th of October.
US presidential election amid coronavirus
The US presidential election is going to take place in the first week of coming November amid the deadly pandemic. According to Johns Hopkins University, the US has been the hardest-hit country with COVID-19 cases. At least more than 185,000 lives have been lost and people who are catching the virus are still prone to danger.
The system of casting the vote has been disturbed enormously. COVID-19 is a massive obstacle in the way of voting in-person. As a result, analysts have predicted that 40 per cent of the votes would be cast by mail for the safety of the people. The mail in-ballot method introduced for casting the vote in the US presidential election has been dubbed as “most inaccurate and fraudulent in the history” by Donald Trump as 76 per cent of the voters are eligible to use the newly introduced method.
Well, for the time being, it is feasible to say that the fate of the US presidential election and vote casting system depends upon the mail in-ballot method whether being appropriate or not.
